Frank Mason

I took this picture at the SVAC exhibition. The woman in the painting also studied with Frank at the same time that Jack and I studied. It is a beautiful painting with dazzling brushwork, yet the most sensitive and subtle nuances. The model and her husband were at the opening, and it was wonderful to see how a beautiful portrait captures the underlying essence of the person. Although, many years had passed since Frank painted this, the model was instantly recognizable, older, but still lovely.

Thanks for posting such a good image of it.
